Review of Samsung Flat Panel Televisions
The Samsung LT-P1545 15” Flat Panel LCD TV takes up minimal counter space while giving you maximum viewing. The wide viewing angles on this Samsung Flat Panel TV ensure easy visibility. The unit can be mounted on the wall or sits easily on the counter. Not only is this $700 unit cable-ready, it can also connect to your computer, letting you surf the web on TV.
HDTV, high definition television, is one of the newest innovations giving us great picture quality. With many choices out there for digital television reception, and more HD networks added every day, HDTV is not just the wave of the future—it’s here now! With a Samsung Flat Panel TV, an HDTV receiver can be connected directly to enjoy brilliant picture quality. The Samsung 32 inch flat panel screen uses a Samsung’s new DNleTM , the new technology found on all of the Samsung flat panel televisions that give you an enhanced and beautiful picture.
The latest LCD Samsung flat panel televisions have features such as picture-in-picture. Picture-in-picture (PIP) allows you to view two different channels simultaneously. Ever wanted to watch two football games at the same time? Now you can! While PIP technology is not new, the Samsung flat panel televisions set it up a little differently. In older television sets, you have one main channel you are watching, while the second is in a little box in the corner. In the Samsung flat panel TV, the PIP is done as a split screen, so half the screen in tuned to one channel, and half to another channel.
Like to watch TV while you work? This new generation of Samsung flat panel TV’s allow you to connect your PC, and use the TV as a computer monitor. So, try picture-in-picture with one picture being the channel you’d like to watch, and the other your computer screen!
Ready to buy a Samsung flat panel TV? Here are some pointers:
- Decide what size TV you want. Samsung flat panel TV’s range in size from 15 to 50 inches. How big is the room for this TV? How big of a stand or cabinet do you have? Keep in mind, bigger is not always better when choosing a TV.
- What type of display are you looking for? Samsung flat panel TV’s come in two forms: LCD (liquid crystal display) or Plasma. Both will give you great picture quality. Plasma is the more expensive option, but will give you a lighter unit and may last longer.
- How much do you want to spend on a TV? Look for sales, compare prices on the internet, and don’t get talked into buying more than you want. That said, Samsung flat panel TV’s are not cheap. The 15 inch version ranges in price from $400 to $600. This is vastly greater than a conventional tube television.
No matter which Samsung flat panel TV you choose, you will have a great product and many years of excellent TV viewing to come.
